Chatbot in Python

12th February, 2019

A chatbot is an artificial intelligence-powered piece of software in a device (Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant etc), application, website or other networks that try to gauge consumer’s needs and then assist them to perform a particular task like a commercial transaction, hotel booking, form submission etc. Today almost every company has a chatbot deployed to engage with the users. Some of the ways in which companies are using chatbots are: To deliver flight information to connect customers and their finances As customer support Building the Bot Pre-requisites Hands-On knowledge of scikit library and NLTK is assumed. However, if you are new to NLP, you can still read the article and then refer back to resources. NLP The field of study that focuses on the interactions between human language and computers is called Natural Language Processing, or NLP for short. It sits at the intersection of computer science, artificial intelligence, and computational linguistics[Wikipedia].NLP is a way for computers to analyze, understand, and derive meaning from human language in a smart and useful way. By utilizing NLP, developers can organize and structure knowledge to perform tasks such as automatic summarization, translation, named entity recognition, relationship extraction, sentiment analysis, speech recognition, and topic segmentation. NLTK: A Brief Intro NLTK(Natural Language Toolkit) is a leading platform for building Python programs to work with human language data. It provides easy-to-use interfaces to over 50 corpora and lexical resources such as WordNet, along with a suite of text processing libraries for classification, tokenization, stemming, tagging, parsing, and semantic reasoning, wrappers for industrial-strength NLP libraries. NLTK has been called “a wonderful tool for teaching and working in, computational linguistics using Python,” and “an amazing library to play with natural language.” Natural Language Processing with Python provides a practical introduction to programming for language processing. I highly recommend this book to people beginning in NLP with Python.
